Originally posted by GameOver: I pray we dont get CJ Spiller...dont get me wrong, kid is straight NASTY but realistically, we don't need to spend a first round pick on a guy we'd probably use primarily as a return specialist...hes a dynamic player who deserves playing time on the field but with the way we play and seeing how I'd imagine that we'd try to become a bit more of that hard nosed smash mouth running football team Sing wants next season, I just don't WANT to see CJ Spiller come here and us not use him to his full potential...
I have a feeling Sing and Scotty aren't even looking to upgrade the RB position at all this offseason. I bet they stick with Coffee and try to develop him into a solid RB.
Anyone know if Reggie Bush would be a RFA or UFA if he's released this offseason ?
Im not a Coffee fan...although I do like what I saw in Clayton but regardless, I want an explosive speedy 3rd RB (Gore, MRob, etc) and Bush would fit that...and he is an UFA if they do decide to cut him...I'd like it if we went after him but again, I wouldnt be opposed to Spiller...I just feel like its too early to draft someone who we wouldnt use to his max potential...
Plus, I think we all agree here that O-line is a major concern that deserves AT LEAST one of our 1st round picks, even maybe 2...
Originally posted by Sharkbait: MD and others, what are your thoughts about Jahvid Best?
I like him a lot, but the one thing that might scare people/teams off is his concussions in college.
I have him pegged late 1st, early 2nd rd area.
not just concussions but injuries in general. it's difficult to see him being able to hold up with anything more that 10 touches per game... he just hasnt done it in his collegiate career.
agreed, he has to have a full clean bill of health IMO for anyteam to target him high, atleast thats my feeling.
I don't know much about Best but I know a lot of people thought the same about Frank Gore coming out of Miami after major injuries to both knees. Just a thought.
Yes, but unlike Gore, Best would be drafted for his speed. Frank was drafted as a true RB.

Hey Maddog love all the info, I was wondering with all the OL in the draft do we need to pick one up so early? also just wondering your thoughts on Carlos Dunlop will he be anything like Mario Williams?
